That or 3.3.3-hammer (needed for proper amd64 suppport too) or just
a patch against 3.3. As far as I've been told, the problem is with
glibc though. And the whole release management thing blocking sid
in such a way is a non sense imho. But that has been discussed over
and over again, all I can say is that I don't agree :)
